we've come to the end of our journey with you Daddy and while the realisation of our new status becomes clearer, it's inevitable to know our journey in life is far from over. upholding the principles and legacy you taught us is all that we will keep evergreen in our heart. Adieu Baba.

My father, My friend, My Pastor and Priest, My Angel, My First love, God-fearing, God-loving, God-fearing, Godly, humble, generous, loving, intelligent, handsome... One who gave all his talents and resources to His Maker. Your dance steps Your baritone voice Your firmness and down-to-earth nature It's beautiful to know that your passage was not an accident. You were HIS child and servant so nothing could have happened to you without HIS knowledge. If I had the chance to choose a father in the "next world"... I'll choose you again a trillion times over. I love you dearly.

Baba Akorede, as we fondly called him, was a father, firm and forthright. God positioned him and he did not fail to deliver. His wise counsels, his songs and the passion with which he did his job and preached the word of God always endeared him to me. His life was exemplary and enviable. Sleep on, dear father. Sweet is your sleep.
